Healing at the Periphery

Ethnographies of Tibetan Medicine in India

Healing at the Periphery

Book Pages: 240 Illustrations: 1 illustration Published: December 2021


“This volume on Tibetan Medicine in India produces a dual sense of the vastness of this medicine's past (indeed its origins in the subcontinent and spread through the Tibetan hinterland) and the specificity of its return journeys arriving with the Tibetan diaspora. Through a palimpsest of ethnographic work, we are reminded of these practitioners' capacious ability to read the external conditions of life in the most minute of bodily disfunctions and the political, historical, social, and fiscal stakes of this task in different Himalayan contexts. This unique and scholarly collection will be of use to any scholar of comparative medical systems in the Asian context for years to come.” — Vincanne Adams, coeditor of Medicine Between Science and Religion: Explorations on Tibetan Grounds
